ASU professor wins $1M DoD grant to boost AI technology

Turaga’s lab to improve computer reliability in identifying objects in images

The director of the School of Arts, Media and Engineering at Arizona State University has won a million-dollar federal grant to improve the way that computers discern images for the U.S. Department of Defense.

Pavan Turaga, who is a professor in both the School of Arts, Media and Engineering and the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering, received an 18-month AI-Explorations grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency earlier this month.

Turaga’s ASU lab, Geometric Media Lab, has been working on fusing different methods, including mathematical, physical and data-driven, to better process and understand imaging data.
